The ratio of the area of the triangle to the area of the square is: (a)√3:1 (b) √3:√2 (c) 3√3:2 (d) 3:√2 Answer by HasanSahin(52)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Draw this situation to a paper now. There is only one middle point of the square,triangle and circle.From this point draw a line to the middle point of the any side of triangle which is intercepting perpendicularly to the side of triangle.You'll see that at this point the line intercepts one point of triangle,circle and square.The length of this line is the radius of circle and half of the diagonal of the square. After then I can not explain the remaining part from here but I can draw and send you as jpeg from e-mail address freely if you send me e-mail: rf.coolest@gmail.com The result is: (c) Rf.
